What is True Greatness of Being Composed of- by djsgjg0045

									People may think that greatness comes from waging a war or ending the existence of
one 鈥檚 foes. That simply is not true. Greatness is that compassion which stems
from inside you. It is not about how well, or how many, people you have vanquished.
  L. Ron Hubbard wrote a message decades ago called What Is Greatness? It is a
lesson for Scientologists and non-Scientologists alike. This is my review of it.
  People get attacked and hurt for no apparent reason often enough. People are hurt
unjustly. So what does a truly great person do when this happens to one?
  He does not strike back. Revenge is not on the road to greatness. L. Ron Hubbard
states that the true sign of sanity and greatness is to continue, despite what has
happened.
  It is true that when one is attacked, to a degree the attacker is partially mad, perhaps
insane. The road to strength is to love his fellows regardless of all the reasons of why
not to, despite the bad actions done to one.
  What Is Greatness explains that people are all in the same trap. The presidents, the
street sweepers, are all in the same trap, and to strike out against them, when they do
bad, is not really understanding them. They are in a mental trap. The best we can do is
to acknowledge the trap they are in and love them anyway. This has been the message
of great religions and philosophers down the centuries and it does not change now.
  Certainly people can do bad things while trying to save themselves. And by not
seeing the greater good needed for, one can be short sighted and can also implement
justice that harms others. But if we are caught up in that mis-justice, we can at least
see what caused it and continue anyway. We should never use what has been done to
us as an excuse to harm someone else. This is an inspiring message.
  Hate destroys. It not only destroys those around one, it destroys one too. Have a look
at those people who hate and see they are being consumed by not only what has
happened to them, but their own hate consumes them too. The same applies to nations
and groups. Those groups that use hate as their vehicle to travel in will soon be
destroyed. It always happens.
  鈥淗 appiness and strength endure only in the absence of hate. To hate alone is the
road to disaster. To love is the road to strength. To love in spite of all is the secret of
greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe.鈥?
  I think this message can help many people. It helped me. I hope it can help you.
